Ayesha Long, owner and expert resume writer of Ayesha Writes 4 You argues that with unemployment rising to 8.1%, job seekers can still be selective during their job search process.

Utilizing her virtual company, Ayesha has focused her attention on workers looking for new work that is both gratifying and well-compensating. Since opening in July 2008, she has helped several employees leave mediocre careers and move to more satisfying positions within their industries.

"At first, I was shocked to see so many employees interested in leaving their jobs," admits the New York-based resume writer, "I had projected that my first few years would have minimal growth due to the increasing threats of layoffs and company uncertainty. I never would have imagined that so many people would be courageous enough to find new occupations during these hard economic times."

Ayesha soon discovered that instead of using the recession as a reason to stay at their companies, most of her clients were using these uncertain times as the reason to find more gratifying work.

According to Sandra*, an employee of a national jewelry store in danger of bankruptcy and one of Ayesha's most recent clients, "When the next recession hits, I don't want to have to look my children in the face and say I can't pay my bills because I was fired from a job I wasn't happy with in the first place."

"Sandra is just one of Ayesha Writes 4 You's customers, but their sentiments are all the same," says Ayesha. "Clients who choose to leave their jobs and those who are forced to go, whether laid-off or fired have the same dual emotions when they come to me -fear of the unknown and hope for a more promising future."

With layoffs and foreclosures happening every day, she projects there will be more people who are not only worried about paying the bills, but also questioning their reasoning to keep working the same displeasing job every day.

With that in mind, Ayesha focuses on making Ayesha Writes 4 You, the professional resume writing company dedicated to helping employees find more fulfilling employment.
